We have already heard of many types of diet people do just to lose weight. From souping, baby food diet, to apple cider vinegar, health-conscious individuals, including celebrities, are doing it.
Clay cleanse is now taking off as a wellness trend. Celebrities Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley even admitted to doing the said detoxification method. This type of body cleansing involves an actual clay called bentonite (also known as Montmorillonite clay). Bentonite clay is made from fine grained, aged-volcanic ash enriched with trace minerals such as potassium, iron, and magnesium that can be ingested and applied on the skin.
The accumulation of toxins in our body can sometimes result in bloating and increase in weight. By doing a proper detox, you can remove those toxins and start toning up. But how does an aged-volcanic ash clay can help you lose weight?
Bentonite clay releases negative charge when hydrated. Its electrical component is responsible for getting rid of all the toxins and heavy metals from your body. It also absorbs impurities in your digestive track and releases them when you use the restroom. Lastly, the clay, when mixed with a full glass of water, gives you a full feeling, making you eat less and crave less food throughout the day.
